PHILADELPHIA, PA (August 14, 2023) – Audacy has announced its highly anticipated, star-studded concert, “We Can Survive,” will move to New York City area for the event’s 10th anniversary on Saturday, October 14 at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

The event, hosted by NEW 102.7 FM (WNEW-FM), will feature performances from Maroon 5, OneRepublic, Kelly Clarkson and more. Part of Audacy’s ongoing I’m Listening mental health initiative, the show celebrates music's power to unite people, strengthening mental health in support of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). 

“We Can Survive has captivated audiences over the past decade with its unforgettable performances, chart-topping artists and unwavering commitment to uniting listeners through the power of music,” said Michael Martin, Senior Vice President of Programming and Head of Music Initiatives, Audacy. “The decision to move the concert from Los Angeles to the New York City area is a testament to the event's growth and its goal of reaching a wider audience. We look forward to connecting with our fans on the East Coast in October.”

We Can Survive continues its support of I’m Listening, Audacy’s commitment to more mental health conversations, and follows the annual I’m Listening special, a live, national broadcast that brings together artists, athletes, medical experts and others with honest conversations about mental health through authentic, open dialogue led by some of the nation’s top influencers.

“We have made tremendous progress as a society in our understanding and openness surrounding mental health. However, many of us are still unsure about what to do when someone we know is struggling. It’s time we take the next step to help those who are struggling get the help they need. AFSP’s new Talk Away the Dark campaign is a powerful reminder that learning the warning signs and having real conversations can make all the difference. We can all help,” said Robert Gebbia, Chief Executive Officer, AFSP. “This is why we are excited to partner with Audacy this year to connect people through music and inspire open, honest, and direct conversations about suicide prevention.”

Past We Can Survive performers have included music's biggest names, including Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Billie Eilish, Jonas Brothers, Alanis Morrisette, Harry Styles, and Shawn Mendes.

Listeners can also decide who the next big music superstar will be during Opening Act. The contest, going on now, will determine who will be the opening act at We Can Survive. Voting is live at The winner, who will be announced in September, will take home $10,000 and take the stage before some of the hottest acts in music today.
